Intimacy is not who you let touch you. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are.
I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.
Robin Williams (via blue811)
Buddhism is atheistic in the sense that a creator God is not accepted; rather, Buddhism presents a view of self-creation, that one’s own actions create one’s life situations. In this light, it has been said that Buddhism is not a religion, but a science of the mind.
